♥ Book Title : De beste verhalen van Guy de Maupassant - 2
☯ Full Synopsis : "De Franse schrijver Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) schreef in een tijdspanne van tien jaar honderden 'contes'; korte verhalen en novellen die hij in een tiental bundels verzamelde. De verhalen variëren van beschrijvingen van belevenissen van prostituees, verhalen over de oorlog van 1870, dorpsverhalen met sluwe, gierige boeren in de hoofdrol en dagelijkse beslommeringen in de kleine burgerij. Maar hij schreef ook macabere en angstaanjagende verhalen die de lezer in verwarring achterlaten. Dit tweede deel bevat de beste verhalen van De Maupassant uit de periode 1881 tot 1882."Article| Guy de Maupassant| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "How is this book unique? Font adjustments & biography included Unabridged (100% Original content) Illustrated About The Works of Guy de Maupassant - Volume 2 "Guy de Maupassant was a French writer, remembered as a master of the short story form, and as a representative of the naturalist school of writers, who depicted human lives and destinies and social forces in disillusioned and often pessimistic terms.Maupassant was a prot�g� of Flaubert and his stories are characterized by economy of style and efficient, effortless d�nouements (outcomes). Many are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s, describing the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught up in events beyond their control, are permanently changed by their experiences. He wrote some 300 short stories, six novels, three travel books, and one volume of verse. His first published story, ""Boule de Suif"" (""Ball of Fat"", 1880), is often considered his masterpiece. Guy de Maupassant was born 5 August 1850 at the Ch�teau de Miromesnil (Castle Miromesnil, near Dieppe in the Seine-Inf�rieure (now Seine-Maritime) department in France. He was the first son of Laure Le Poittevin and Gustave de Maupassant, both from prosperous bourgeois families. When Maupassant was 11 and his brother Herv� was five, his mother, an independent-minded woman, risked social disgrace to obtain a legal separation from her husband.After the separation, Laure Le Poittevin kept her two sons. With the father's absence, Maupassant's mother became the most influential figure in the young boy's life. She was an exceptionally well-read woman and was very fond of classical literature, particularly Shakespeare. Until the age of thirteen, Guy happily lived with his mother, at �tretat, in the Villa des Verguies, where, between the sea and the luxuriant countryside, he grew very fond of fishing and outdoor activities. At age thirteen, his mother next placed her two sons as day boarders in a private school, the Institution Leroy-Petit, in Rouen--the Institution Robineau of Maupassant's story La Question du Latin--for classical studies. From his early education he retained a marked hostility to religion, and to judge from verses composed around this time he deplored the ecclesiastical atmosphere, its ritual and discipline.Finding the place to be unbearable, he finally got himself expelled in his next-to-last year.""Article| Guy de Guy de Maupassant| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Guy de Maupassant
☯ Full Synopsis : "Maupassant occupe une place à part dans les lettres françaises. S'il jouit d'une grande popularité auprès du lectorat et des élèves de l'enseignement secondaire où ses contes et romans sont beaucoup étudiés, il semble moins intéresser l'université et les institutions françaises. En dehors des célébrations de sa mort et de sa naissance, rares sont les numéros de revues et les ouvrages collectifs qui lui ont été consacrés. Cependant, l'oeuvre du nouvelliste et du romancier est l'une des plus traduites et des plus lues à l'étranger. Il était donc nécessaire de s'interroger sur la position actuelle de Maupassant dans le monde et dans la recherche hors de l'hexagone, en ce début de XXIe siècle.Ce volume réunit les contributions de douze chercheurs français et étrangers, enseignant aux quatre coins du globe. Chacun à sa manière souligne la diversité des études sur l'oeuvre de Maupassant dans les pays francophones (Belgique, Tunisie) et non francophones (Espagne, Grande-Bretagne, Italie, Nouvelle-Zélande, Pays-Bas, Portugal, Roumanie, Suède, Ukraine). A travers différentes approches critiques (narratologie, poétique, stylistique, étude de la réception, comparatisme, analyse filmique...), leurs travaux privilégient de nouvelles lectures et des domaines moins étudiés (le Maupassant conteur, chroniqueur, épistolier, ayant influencé et inspiré ses contemporains et les artistes d'aujourd'hui), pour constituer une sorte de bilan critique. Des documents inédits (lettres et carte) viennent compléter l'ensemble."Article| Noëlle Benhamou| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Maupassant and the American Short Story
☯ Full Synopsis : "Maupassant and the American Short Story isolates and develops more fully than any previous study the impact of Maupassant's work on the writing of Ambrose Bierce, O. Henry, Kate Chopin, and Henry James. It introduces a new perspective to assess their canons, reviving the importance of many often-ignored stories and, in the cases of Maupassant and O. Henry, reasserting the necessity of studying such writers to understand the history of the genre. An important moment in the history of the short story occurred with the American misreading of Maupassant's use of story structure. Before the turn of the century, Jonathan Sturges and others published mostly surprise-inversion tales in translation. Especially inspiring Bierce and O. Henry, this skewed sample implied to American writers that Maupassant constructed such plots exclusively. Only a few writers, such as James and Chopin, both of whom read Maupassant in French, appreciated his deft handling of form more fully. Their vision and the impact of Maupassant upon their fiction was largely ignored by later generations of writers who preferred to associate Maupassant and O. Henry with the "trick ending" story. This book details the origins and consequences of this misperception. The book further contributes to the study of the short-story genre. Through an adaptation of Aristotelian concepts, Richard Fusco proposes an original approach to short-story structure, defining and developing seven categories of textual formulas: linear, ironic coda, surprise-inversion, loop, descending helical, contrast, and sinusoidal. As a practitioner of all these forms, Maupassant established his mastery of the genre. By studying his use of form, the book asserts a major reason for his pivotal importance in the historical development of the short story."Article| Richard Fusco| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Foreign Soul & the Angelus
☯ Full Synopsis : "In The Foreign Soul we are in classic Maupassant territory. Robert Mariolle, a wealthy Parisian bachelor, has just arrived in the fashionable spa town of Aix-les-Bains determined to enjoy himself at the casino in the company of high society, attempting to get over his break up with mistress, Henriette Lambel. The Angelus was intended to be Maupassant's great masterpiece, an ambitious inverted allegory of Christianity into which the author would pour his growing pessimism and despair. Set during the Franco-Prussian War, as were some of Maupassant's finest short stories, The Angelus finds the pregnant Countess de Bremontal alone in her chateau as Prussian troops move into the neighbourhood. Here are the first English translations of Maupassant's two unfinished novels, The Foreign Soul [L'Ame etrangere] and The Angelus [L'Angelus], together with full critical apparatus, including secondary sources outlining Maupassant's future plot ideas and an essay on The Foreign Soul by Paul Bourget."Article| Guy de Maupassant| Statement ..."
